Skolen Online is an educational platform for students who do not fit into the classic settings for education. Denmark's Export and Investment Fund has given the business a loan of half a million DKK, and the financing is going to further develop own educational materials. 

To us, it is about thinking teaching anew, while simultaneously embracing technology and the differences in individuals. Because everyone deserves equal opportunity to go to school, no matter who they are
— Tanja Schjellerup, founder, Skolen Online


The platform refers to itself as a school in the literal sense, and relies on the philosophy behind the greek word, which builds on intellectual development in combination with leisure. To Skolen Online, it is freedom in setting, peace for immersion, as well as professional and social well being, which is the focus.
